It's unclear, however, if oddsmakers have factored in the stressful effects of the Thunder's flight to Chicago, which center Steven Adams called "a rough flight, to say the least", in a Twitter post. However, Delta officials believe the aircraft likely struck a bird at 30,000 feet, which caused the nose of the plane to cave in.
The plane touched down safely and on schedule around 1 a.m. local time, albeit not totally intact, following the Thunder's 116-119 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday night in Minneapolis.
Wolf, in an email, said no one was hurt and the plane landed without incident.

A plane carrying an NBA Team was damaged while mid-air last night. She said the Boeing 757-200 landed safely without incident at Chicago's Midway International Airport. That's what Oklahoma City Thunder players went through as they exited the plane after flying to Chicago.
Patrick Patterson said the Thunder hit Superman.
